Hello there, this is my first post and I hope that someone can help me out on this. I have a Windows ME computer and are currently running on 30% of free resources, I have tried several things to get the resources up, and get my computer to run faster, but no luck. I run Norton System Works and besides that, I really don't have to have anythi else running in the back. I just need help speeding up my computer and getting the resources freed up. My computer is about a year and a half old, and mostly just use it for work that I do at home. I have tried to type the msconfig in the run part and I am just unsure of what to check or uncheck in this matter. I am really hoping that someone can help me out on this.....thanks alot....
Go to add and remove programs. Take everything out you do not need. Clean you temporary files, run defrag and scandisk.
Hope this helps a little.
While in msconfig, the only things you actually need to auto start when you boot up are, systray.exe and tweakUI (if you have it installed). These are optional, firewall program (only if on always on access (cable modem or dsl)), anything that has RunDLL32 in it.
Stuff like your virus scan program or game controllers you can always start manually.
And disable the WinME system restore, if you don't use it. System restore uses alot of resources.

Most everyone here has covered pretty much what could help, I just want to say.... WELCOME to SYSOPT!!
Hi everyone...thanks for all the great advice on the resources prob, I went to msconfig and cleared out alot and now am currently at 55% free so I am still working on getting it a little higher. Will try out a few more things and go from there. Talk to ya soon...
This link might help you with those startup programs.
If you are still unsure, go to your System Information/software/startup. Copy and paste the list back here and I'm sure someone will be willing to help you.
